By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Cycling Federation of Belize (CFB) today confirmed that National Road Champion Justin Williams and National Time Trial Champion Oscar Quiroz will be leading Belize’s contingent of 15 cyclists to the Pan American Road Cycling Championships and the 20th Caribbean Road Cycling Championships.
The two regional championships will be held in Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic from August 11-15.
CFB president Orson Butler said Belize will be represented in the Men’s Elite Category by Williams, Quiroz, Giovanni Lovell, Joslyn Chavarria, Byron Pope, and Wasani Castro.
The U-23 riders selected are Shawn Codd, Eric Trapp, Joshua Fuller, Gian Lino, Carlton Robinson, and Henry Li.
As expected, the three Women’s elite riders are National Road Champion Alicia Thompson, National Time Trial Champion, Nicole Gallego, and National Road and Time Trial subchampion Kaya Cattouse.
The substitute riders are Robert Liam Stewart, Angel Tzib and Shane Jones for the Men’s Elite and Jyven Gonzalez, Mairon Muñoz and Patrick Williams for the U-23.
Williams, Castro, and Li have been riding the USA Crits, while Quiroz, Cattouse, Lovell, and Pope recently rode the 10-day Intelligentsia Cup in Chicago. The other riders have been riding weekday and weekend races in Belize including the National Time Trial and Road Championships held recently as well.
The CFB said both events are listed as qualifying events for the Junior Pan American Championships in Cali, Colombia for U23 riders.
The two championships include men’s and women’s time trials and road races.
The Pan American Federation invitation had said a maximum of 22 people can comprise the national delegations, including six riders of the Men’s Elite Category, six from the Men’s U-23, six Women’s Elite and U23 Categories, one delegate, one coach, one mechanic, and one masseur.
